About Me

I am licensed in Illinois as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. Prior to working with LivingRite, I serviced clients and their families within community mental health settings for 3 years. Prior to my experiences in community mental health, I volunteered at an agency that provided crisis services to adolescents, professional development courses for adolescents, and I volunteered within an agency providing support for patients in hospice care. Previously, I serviced patients and their families within an assisted living facility.

I deliver therapeutic services from an integrative Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), solution-focused, and strengths-based therapy model. I work with adolescents, adults, and geriatric populations. I provide therapeutic services to individuals, couples and families. My areas of clinical expertise include mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, grief/loss concerns, relationship difficulties, interpersonal conflict, trauma, personality disorders, couples, self-esteem issues, caretaker support, neurocognitive disorders (Alzheimer’s/dementia), co-occurring substance use concerns, parenting support, and postpartum/perinatal concerns.

I believe that therapy is most effective when therapeutic rapport is established between the client and the clinician. My treatment interventions are focused on skill-building, creating solutions, and challenging maladaptive patterns. I believe therapy is a collaborative process and my interventions will be uniquely tailored to your needs.
